Manny Pacquiao is widely expected to win his bout Saturday with chief rival Juan Manuel Marquez, and understandably so. Pac Man has been untouchable since his last competitive fight—in March 2008 against Marquez—and most indicators favor Pacquiao more so in this fight than his first two against Marquez.
At the 144 pound catchweight, Pacquiao is at a much more comfortable weight than Marquez, who is moving up to welterweight for only the second time in his career. Most of us remember the first—a 12-round shutout loss to Floyd Mayweather in 2009.
Age is also working against Marquez, as is momentum.
But if Pacquiao wins, then fans are surprisingly in the dark about what his next move is. Everyone hopes for a showdown with Floyd Mayweather, Jr., but recent history tells us the odds of that are slim, no matter what kind of grandstanding Mayweather has been involved in recently.
Here's a list of possible post-fight scenarios that I came up with if Pacquiao wins the fight with Marquez on Saturday. I've assigned probabilities for each possible choice.
